Idris Elba makes a stand
Action, villains and more
Universal postpone production in wake of Paul Walker's tragic death
The Action Hero: A guitar-strumming, ponytail-wearing institution, Seagal is probably the most glaring omission from the Expendables movies so far. Get him signed up, Sly!Current Age: 60Most Recent Film: Maximum Conviction (2012)Still Got It? He turned in an enjoyable cameo in Machete, but whether he could carry a movie is another matter. Still, who wouldn't like to see him try?

It was very nice to see good old Burt Reynolds here....long lives the Bandit! Some I missed here on the list: De Niro, Pacino, Jackman.... not all of them to-the-bone action heroes, but some on the list weren't either. And Gary Busey....well, is there an actual normal (recent) pic of this guy around...haven't seen one in a while. He was great at his peak though.

Bruce Willis was excellent in Looper, I thought. Top form stuff.

Wow, there's a pretty huge level of fail happening in this list, a good 95% of which is the complete lack of women. Was Ellen Ripley not enough of a badass for you? Is Sarah Connor just a damsel in distress? Did The Bride not cut an imposing enough figure in that yellow jumpsuit? Did you fail to notice how much a*s Lucy Liu and Michelle Yeoh can kick because you were too busy making googly eyes over how pretty they were? Did you completely miss the point of GI Jane?
(The remaining 5% is me wondering what the hell kind of action hero list neglects the freakin' Wolverine, and how anyone could think of Sean Bean but forget his LotR co-star, Viggo Mortenson.)

This is an incredibly sexist list of "50 Oldest Action Heroes." No way should it be completely free of any female characters. Come on now - why define action heroes as being only of one gender?

Antonio Banderas wasn't in El Mariachi.

I didn't seem to see Rutger Hauer on the list. A great actor and action actor.
Also Sigourney Weaver might have been a good addition as well.
